sure hamas in gaza does not govern the relationship with egypt but that he did governs the relationship with hamas. if this is the route that the government of egypt pursues, then the potential for working relationship with israel is possible. if it tries to achieve political success via ideological means, then we, in the united states, will be in a difficult position and the israelis will be any more difficult position. we are about to see the completion of the security fence. people think of what is going up between the west bank and pre-'67 israel. it will not be done for a long time. the one i'm talking about is along the egypt-israel border which has unanimous support among the israeli political system and has gone up with lightning speed. that is almost completed and is likely to have a powerful impact on the potential for terrorism and inviting from inside egypt to israel. you have a question earlier? no? howard. >> 10 years ago, we were frantically trying to buy of stinger missiles in bosnia which got there from afghanistan, probably. if we consider legal support to the syrian f

hamas. to get at the syrian brotherhood which had been targeting regime elements. they are not free or innocent themselves and 20-30,000 people were killed in a couple of days. now it's been more of a -- what i call in the book, machiavellian blood-letting because the regime didn't want this single day or two day or three-day massacre of the city or a chemical -- use of chemical weapon s that would galvanize an international response and compel the international community to respond. so it's been more this piece-by-piece and has to do with the various limitations on the syrian army and the trust tt worthy elements of the syrian army. but i would blame the government most of all for that initial reaction. >> thank you. yes. >> yes, personally don't think we should have gone the middle east in a war for any reason, but bush had to have his war. the russians failed, the british failed. don't you think we started all these clans and these factions -- haven't we stirred them up by starting these things we did? can you comment on that? >> comment on how we can -- >> well, not on -- well,

him. -- not only on hamas but the area around him. he sees the high likelihood this will produce a backlash. he gives an interview with channel 2 on israel. you see him being burned in effigy. he can assume the consequences are if in fact he takes these steps. it has had a chilling effect on him. also, given what you see with the arab awakening has made him act more as a populist. you are going to do a deal. will it be durable? what are you going to visit after it? this is a time where thinking about taking big leaps forward has a tendency to think about what are the risks and not what are the opportunities. i would say it is understandable that both sides have that view, but i would also say something else. the status quo will not remain static. the democratic cockle keep ticking. the intellectual current with a lot of younger palestinians is to say one person, one vote. one of the challenges for the administration will be how do you preserve the possibility of a two state outcome that remains and stress, israeli interests, and palestinians interest. it will never achieve the pa
